  • 1. Narrative Theory <br />
  • 2. Establish Equilibrium <br />Tzvetan Todorov:<br />Tzvetan Todorov suggested that conventional narratives are structured in<br />five stages:<br />. A state of equilibrium are at the outset<br />. A disruption of the equilibrium by some actions <br />. A recognition that there has been a disruption<br />. An attempt to repair the disruption <br />. A reinstatement of the equilibrium <br />All five of these stages are present in our production. We have three different<br />scenarios, its doesn’t follow just one story. We shows this by using cuts, jumping from<br />one characters life to another., showing the different situations of each character. <br />
  • 3. Director Research <br />Ken Loach ;<br />English film director who is known for his naturalism and social realism directing style. Loach<br />strives in every area of film making to emphasize genuine interplay between actors, to the point<br />where some scenes of his films are unscripted. Ken believes that rather than employing method<br />actors, he prefers unknown talent who have had some had some of he actual life experience of the<br />characters they portray. Loach makes great efforts to help the actors express themselves<br />naturally and honestly. He believes that shooting in order, from first scene to last, helps the<br />actors enormously to find a truthful response to their circumstances.<br />Although Ken Loach is a film director and not music video his approach to the production , we <br />still collaborated Loaches approach of film style into the production of our music video. Our actors<br />we told of the general story of the music video and asked to do what ever feels natural for<br />them to do in the characters situation. The situations we tried to establish in our production were<br />all relating to real life and there for wanted to make sure we got a true reflection of how it affects<br />people. <br />
  • 4. Propp studied folk tales and legends from many different countries and noticed that they<br />tend to have a similar trend. This trend being that they seemed to be about the same <br />basic problems and the same basic character types cropped up in most of the folk tales.<br />He focused on the way the characters appeared as types rather than individuals. Some of<br />the types being :<br />-The villain (opposes the hero)<br />-The hero<br />-The donor (helps hero)<br />-The dispatcher (also helps hero)<br />-The false hero (tempts the hero away from quest)<br />- The helper (helps hero)<br />-The princess (who is the reward for hero)<br />- The father (who rewards hero for efforts)<br />-The victim (hero tries to help)<br />The narrative to out production would be that all our characters are victims looking to find a way<br />of releasing themselves, this do this through the notion of dance “ Dance your cares away”. <br />
